What can I do to help with my pain?

I use 2 50 mg. Tramadol + 2 Excedren 2-3 times a day. Sometimes I use Parafon Forte and Percocet in the evenings because the tramadol makes me hyper. Gabapentin has been a god send to my sleep as was Restorel. I take 15 mg x 2.

I just took Excedrin for a headache and found it helped my pain a little...thought it was my imagination! What's Tramadol?

Hi Dawn. I suggest starting with the least medicinal ways first. I have found that heat helps me a great deal. Then I go to advil, 800mg. If that doesn't help then you'll need something stronger. Exercise will also help. Sometimes I hurt really badly, but if I take myself out on a nice walk---not too fast paced, it seems to start up our bodies natural pain killers (endorphins). Soaking in a nice hot bath for all over aches and pains is great also, plus it relaxes you---another problem for us FMS folks. If worse comes to worse, hydrocodone has worked well for me as a last choice.
